Teacher's Day 2010

Brunei celebrates Teacher’s Day today – 23rd September 2010. I wiki’ed this to get a bit more info about the origins, and found out that we celebrate it today to remember and to commemorate the birth date of the 28th Sultan of Brunei - the late Omar Ali Saifuddien III, also known as the 'Architect of Modern Brunei'.

In theme with the day, I thought about my old school in Seria. Now, when I say old, what I mean is that I was there from Kindy right up to Secondary 5 in 1997. Yup – 1997; mIRC was cool, Roller Blading was phasing out, and Spiceworld (ha!) hit the big screens. What a year. But anyways...which school did I go to?

St. Margaret’s School, Seria. Some memories from my schooling days - setting up the mini-podium and hooking up the megaphone for morning assemblies, Tug-of-War at the annual Sports Day, and of course, chilling at the tuck-shop. But perhaps more importantly, I remember a lot of my teachers - Mr Mohan, Mrs Abraham, Ms Wee, Mr Singam, Mrs Ravi, Cikgu Hasnah, etc etc etc. Ahhh, good days. Funny how you only miss school days when you are no longer there.

Here's to you, Teacher. Past, present or future, thank you.
